Where Will We Fit That New Star On Old Glory?

Bear with me on this one, for I think this is a really great idea. It’s a way for our President to SEIZE THE DAY and make a bold, innovative move that will captivate the world’s imagination in that swankily overtly nuanced style of his that will make him the talk of tea rooms and massage parlors around the globe. It will also move him ever closer to his campaign vision of 57 states. I’m talking about, yes, of course: we annex Iceland and make them a state.

Look, it makes perfect sense. After the financial mess they made the past few years all of Europe already hates their guts, and when you add in all the new love that this week’s igneous effusions from Iceland have produced on The Continent, well, hell, they’re basically Gringos already from the European point of view.

Plus, the Icelanders-I-Mean-Soon-To-Be-51st-Staters do shit like this

and this

Can you imagine what they’ll come up with once we entice them with endless cases of long neck Buds?

God, they’re perfect for us.

    I was just saying this morning: how long before we hear talk of an airline bailout b/c of the loss of revenue from the ash cloud?

    Oh you just know that’s coming, ricki.

    I think you are onto something Bingley. I LOVE the idea…also, it extends our reach ever closer to Europe so the next time we have to invade…sorry…liberate them, we will be that much closer

    I used to live in Iceland. Even back in the 70’s you wouldn’t find a place more anti-american in the euro socialist mode.

    Icelanders pride themselves, in the cities anyway, on how avant garde they are with the eurotrash attitude. It’s like an inferiority complex. As soon as the threat from the USSR vanished, they kicked NATO out of their country as fast as they could.

    The people are usually nice once you get to talk with them, but they tend to be very stand offish.

    I remember 4 wheel drives being very popular back then, but they didn’t have the money for the specialized machines they show above. Remember that the only reason there is that kind of money is because Iceland was a prime actor in destroying our economy. They had money to burn because they were complicit in the fannie mae mortgaging fraud. That’s our wealth they are playing with on those hills.

    They have fish, sheep and lava rocks. That is the extent of their economy. That generally doesn’t pay for the toys they have. I’m happy for them, most of the individuals had no role to play in the frauds, but that is where their wealth came from.

    Iceland as a US state? I think we would take on Sonora as a state before Iceland ever would want to be one, and that would never happen.

    and dang, Skyler, you’ve gotten around a bit, eh?

    That’s big Murkin Iron under them hoods, which Obama hates. Strike two: Iceland gets its heat from volcanos so O can’t tax it. Strike three: they went bankrupt even before we did.

    That said, I’d vote yeah if Al Sharpton becomes its governor. It’s only fair.

    I was in 7th and 8th grade, my dad was stationed at the NATO base. It’s a fascinating place. I went back for a visit in 1991 and enjoyed it. I hope to go again someday.

    What about the hot babes? Aren’t there hot babes in Iceland?

  9. Skyler says:

    Yes, Icelandic women are very beautiful on the whole. And I always liked how they sunbathed topless on the roofs of the buildings they worked in.

    I never saw a fat Icelander.

    Oh, and the same guy that designed the current flag (a 17 year old for a class project) also designed a 51 star flag. The 51 star flag has six rows of stars, starting with a row of nine and alternated by rows of eight to total 51 stars.
